HI monday i saw the light on the dash board written P\S so i just wanna know wat is it for cos i think its for power steering


If you "feel" it's the power steering oil, check P/S level to be sure.
If you see that really you need to add oil, check in your user's manual what TYPE of oil you should use for power steering. Normally in most cars it's the same type of oil used for transmission.
You don't have the Manual?
Look here, ok, it's a 2005 manual but I'm quite suer they use the same oil.

In any case, the neares Citroen dealer might help you .
If level is OK, you should do a computer scan or your car to find out why P/S list's in.

Check oil light stays on


Your vehicle may have an "oil level" sensor built into the oil pan. If so, and the sensor is bad, the dash will constantly tell you that the engine needs more oil even if it does not. Checking the oil with the dipstick, a minute after the engine has been turned off on level ground is always the best way to check your oil. Try scanning the vehicles computer systems to see if there are any fault codes. The warning light may also be on a timer that just needs to be reset. The "Check Oil" light should be separate from the engine oil pressure warning light. As long as the engine oil pressure light stays off, you should be ok. Checking the oil pressure with a manual gauge would be a good idea as well.

HOW TO GET RID OF THE ABS AND BRAKE LIGHTS ON DASH


Hello, welcome to Fixya!

The ABS and brake lights on your dash board is cause by low brake fluid/oil level. When the brake fluid/level of your vehicle is low, the ABS light and brake light will appear on your dash board, indicating that it needs to be checked.

So open your bonnet and check the brake fluid/oil and make sure it is not low. The brake fluid/oil is the first that needs to be checked in a situation like this.

If the above appears not to be the problem, please let me know.

Regards.

Oil light flashing on dash


check for proper oil level in engine with dipstick if ok.then install mechanical oil pressure gauge on oil pressure sending unit to verify proper oil pressure, if pressure ok. then replace the sending unit/sensor, if pressure not ok. , you may need to remove engine oil pan to check for restriction on oil pick-up tube screen. if ok replace pump. but also check clearance on mains and connecting rods.

My 2001 VW Polo oil pressure warning light comes on regularly after driving for approx 8 miles - oil level & pressure both appear to be ok and water level too. Oil sensors replaced but to no avail....


Have you checked your thermostat. Some cars do not have gauges for all componants of the car located on the dash board. A bad thermostat could drive the oil pressure gauge up, if there is not a coolant level gauge on the dash board.

I have a 2002 Cherokee 2.4 sport petrol engine Jeep. Recently the oil warning light ( red) on the dash board stays permanantly on. The oil level checks OK and the engine appears to be running OK. Could it...


Oil pressure sending unit should be located somewhere near the oil filter. check that the wire is attached to it and is not grounded. If engine is not making any tapping noises chances are that the sender is bad. If after changing it, the problem persists, put a mechanical gauge on the system (attach where sender is) and read actual oil pressure (should be no lower than 15psi when hot but I prefer better than 20 hot at idle, 40-50 running at 2000rpm)
